Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Sometimes I just have an immense craving for cookie dough.  And although the raw eggs thing has never deterred me from snitching a bite (or 2 or 3) of cookie dough while baking cookies, I was excited to find this recipe that does not have any eggs in it at all! 

And boy was it good...so hold on to your hats!:)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Recipe from Love and Olive Oil
Pin It
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 oz dark chocolate candy coating (I've used chocolate flavoried Almond Bark too)

Beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.  (I know all the waiting is rough!)

When your dough is firm enough to handle, form it into about 1" size balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.  Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.  (I know....more waiting!!)

Melt chocolate candy coating in microwave according to package directions. You can use toothpicks or a spoon to dip the cookie balls into the chocolate.  Tap to remove any excess chocolate and then place it back on the wax paper.  When all the balls are coated, place in the fridge until set.  (Trust me...all the waiting is worth it!)

Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week!
